Michael Sam’s Boyfriend Revealed As Student-Athlete Swimmer Vito Cammisano
He’s about to diiiiiiiiiive innnnnnnn!
Hours after Michael Sam made NFL history and then locked lips with his boyfriend, the couple partied the night away in Sin City.
The mystery man was unmasked as Vito Cammisano, a 23-year-old fellow University of Missouri alum, who starred on the school’s swim team. He swam competitively from 2009 to 2012 and graduated last year.
“We are staying home! Could not be more proud of my babe,” the newly famous boyfriend tweeted after the St. Louis Rams selected Sam near the end of the seventh and final round of the draft on Saturday.
The kissing photo, which went viral instantly and was published on the front page of Sunday’s Daily News, was taken at the home of Sam’s agent in San Diego. Then Sam and his man were off to Tao nightclub in Las Vegas, where they got their party on until 3 a.m. Sunday, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
Sam, 24, got a shoutout from the DJ and made small talk with Richard Sherman of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. He settled in with Cammisano at a VIP table, the Sun reported. They were among a group of about 10 people.
Says Vito’s aunt about the boysssss:
“He’s been a pleasant, pleasant boy all his life,” Cammisano’s aunt, Cathy Nigro, said of her nephew.
“I was very proud of them both,” Nigro said of the kiss. “I think the whole family is.”
Nigro said she’s met Sam, liked him very much and called him “a great athlete.”
LOL @ her last name ironically being “Nigro”
